how long does it take to delete categories? and how do i merge categories?

+4 votes

I'm asking since i recently put {{Delete Category}}  on two different duplicate categories. i'm hoping they'll get deleted soon so can attempt to merge Category: Jalisco, México and Category:Jalisco, and then later some other categories under project mexico. I haven't figured out how i'll merge categories listed in previous sentence yet or what the name of said category should be yet

You can find all about EditBOT here.

Usually it is run once a day. On mondays I often skip the run, since my computer is busy with recalculating the suggestions.

I will run it now.

And you can see the log file here

It will be called ChangeLog 20180521 ... .htm

thanks for getting them deleted, now i just gotta get one or more project mexico leader on board for category merging. I already contacted austin perez, just waiting on a response from him.

The bot is usually run every day. I looked at both of the deletes you did, and they are both ready to go with no links in them.

You can do your category merge, but you need to have the name of the new category set up already. Are you working with the Mexico project on this?

well i am a part of project mexico, but i have yet to contact other members on the subject, i may see about doing that before the merging part since that be less of an easy fix than those catergories i'm trying to get deleted. i need to pick a name plus figure out what to do with profiles that have both duplicate categories listed on them

edit:yes i went thru the trouble of getting rid of all links in those catergories i wanted to delete before putting the delete tag on them
Ok, hope you get it worked out. Thanks.
